Oh Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

These are the three days that we exalt, look forward to and wait on. These are the times we have the option to breathe, have fun, and enjoy the reward of our hard work. This is when we explore DFW, and find something to new do.

As usual, there’s no need to Google or search the DFW activities pages. Here are out top picks right here.

All Weekend: Hang Out With Other Fans

Ready to nerd out? You can attend the Dallas Comic Con: Fan Days at the Irving Convention Center. Dr. Who, The Walking Dead, photo ops, costumes — you name it, Comic Con has it. Join other fans and enjoy a magical weekend full of social entertainment.

Price: $20.

When: All weekend.


Saturday: Taco Heaven

If you like tacos like we like tacos, The Dallas Observer’s Tacolandia is for you. You can march down to Dallas City Hall on Saturday and enjoy an outdoor taco bazaar. Featuring the city’s best tacos, “ranging from urban contemporary to authentic street style,” you are allowed an unlimited sampling of tacos, tacos, and more tacos. There’s music, cash bars with beer and cocktails, and awards, but really, who needs any of that when you can eat tacos until you burst?

Price: $25.

When: 4-7 pm, Sat. Oct. 15.


Saturday: Hockey Time

Nothing says fall like a great American hockey game. Head over to the ice this weekend and catch the San Antonio Rampage opening night event where they take on the Milwaukee Admirals. And eat a hot dog for me while you’re there!

Price: $8-$75.

When: 7 pm Sat., Oct. 15.


Saturday: Celebrate the Moon

We all like free, and free with a crowd is even better. This Saturday at Klyde Warren Park, come out to celebrate the full autumn moon. Picnic, experience calligraphy, and be part of a tea ceremony all while enjoying Japanese music and dances, and more. This activity is presented in partnership with the Japan-America Society of DFW.

Price: Free.

When: 7-10 pm Sat., Oct. 15.


Sunday: Have a Beer
